My setup is this:
Linux Server: the latest as of today
Dsp: the latest as of today
Winamp: the latest as of today
I have a working station here:
EDIT - I set up another .conf file here just to make sure...
My Server is always rollin, I never get a hiccup.
It resides on a dsl connection that is NOT fixed IP, thus I use no-ip.
My issue is with winamp and dsp... whenever my isp decides to change my address, all hell breaks loose.
The server makes it through the change alright, I have no-ip set up to update every five minutes, so my server bounces back fine. But the DSP goes through a constant cycle of not being able to reconnect, AND I have to force it to quit... ctrl+alt+delete.. if I restart it, it connects fine until the next IP change.
RECAP the problem: when my DSL router IP address changes... winamp/dsp plugin goes haywire and cannot reconnect...
Server running Fedora Core 4
my server heirarchy goes like this
DSL router dynamic ip>
>pppoe bridge to linksys>
>port forward to server at fixed ip>
>no-ip update client>
my shoutcast client
is on a machine running windows xp home behind a linksys router. fixed ip 192.168.1.5
Newest winamp lite and DSP
There are no firewalls, or other programs running at all on the client machine.
I have made an asx file to point to /listen.pls
is there a more effiecient way to make my stream more compatible to the majority of the public, I intend to place my station directly on my host page for my free internet HotSpots. Specifically I plan to re-direct anybody who uses my hotspot to a webpage that contains local links, advertising for local business, and a link to listen to a local radio station, I have sucessfully got the radio station re-broadcasted, but I want to make sure the people using my hot spots dont have to download anything... I have achieved similar success with mp3's using flash, but not streams. Any help would be appreciated... I know this topic has been covered ALOT on this site, and I have read through most of it... I appreciate any help I get and i will be a contributer here once I figure this out...
you see... I have only started to play with linux 3 days ago/ server has been up since
, and shoutcast two days ago... I learn very fast...
Thanks in advance
